For 2017, Wireless is back and bigger than ever. Year on year the festival is home to the hottest grime & rap artists from the UK and America, and this year boasts some of its biggest names ever. We’ve put together your ultimate guide to this year’s festival, leaving you with no excuse to miss anyone.
Friday 7th July
Friday seems to be the day for the lighter, more soulful artists, with Chance the Rapper (and his frequent collaborator NoName), Bryson Tiller and Fetty Wap gracing the stages of Finsbury park. They’ll be accompanied by Post Malone and the (less soulful) Flatbush Zombies.
From our side of the Atlantic, Big Narstie and Geko will be holding down the base, with Tim Westwood DJing throughout the day – and during the whole weekend.
Saturday 8th July
Saturday and Sunday are the biggest days for UK acts, with the former hosting Skepta, Dave, Mostack, Big Tobz, Young T & Bugsey and Cadet alongside Travi$ Scott, Rae Sremmurd, Young Thug and Sean Paul. Lil Yachty, who’s just teamed up with Stefflon Don for a track on his album, will also be performing.
Sunday 9th July
The final day of the festival will feature The Weeknd, Nas, Tory Lanez, Wizkid and Lil Uzi, performing alongside our very own Kojo Funds, Stefflon Don, Abra Cadabra, Bugzy Malone and previous podcast guest Mike Skinner presenting Tonga.
It’s set to be a huge weekend, but this isn’t all we’ve got for you. Keep your eyes peeled right here on GRM Daily for more Wireless announcements.
